as president obama looked on from the pew the some conservatives in washington want to return to the bad old days of segregation or something. joining us is charles krauthammer. i don't want to put words in your mouth. i was down in caribbean and i kind of got the gist that you weren't that upset about this. as some people were. >> is that true? >> i'm afraid heads will have to roll in your research department. i was pretty rough on the pastor. i thought what he did was disgraceful. i think i called it libel. and it was actually quite an echo of what ted kennedy said when robert bork, remember when he was nominated within minutes kennedy was on the floor of the senate saying robert bork's america is in america where blacks can't be served at the counter. where women have back room abortions. and the pastor at this church essentially said the same thing. it's a racist country. racist, sexist, blames it on the religious right and it was a libel. it was a slander of the first order. the question was was obama somehow complicit in this because he didn't object before or afterwards my answer is w
president obama heads to colorado to push for new gun control legislation. but he's coming under some serious fire for using decades-old information to sell a key part of his plan. we're live from washington. >> president obama barack obama continues his pressure campaign on a reluctant congress to pass federal gun control legislation. he's heading to colorado to meet with police and local lawmakers displaying a gun control package signed into law by governor john hick looper, yet his arguments are supposedly full of stale statistics. 40% of all gun purchases were made without a background check, but that number is almost 20 years old. >> why wouldn't we want to make it more difficult for a dangerous person to get his or her hand on a gun? why wouldn't we want to close the loophole that allows as many as 40% of all gun purchases to take place without a background check? why wouldn't we do that? >> that 40% bit was pulled from a study where 251 answered the question about where they got their guns. now we're hearing from groups like the washington gun association. members held a press
'm very hopeful that we can get this passed. >> dana milbank writes in "the washington post". obama on guns too little too late. on almost every topic from budget negotiations to national security, washington seems only to act these days in response to crisis if it acts at all. obama errored in trying to use newtown to build support for his positions on taxes and energy and immigration and he compounded the error by sending j joe biden to conduct a study. once the president took his foot off the accelerator no other action not even michael bloomberg's ad campaign to maintain the momentum. mark kelly has been, obviously, outspoken advocate on gun control legislation and he has been going around and buying guns and showing how long it takes to fill out a background check. i think it was like five minutes and 36 seconds, just if you care. if you can wait five minutes and 36 seconds for your gun. >> so i'm hearing behind the scenes there is still a deal that is being worked on universal background checks but yesterday it sound like it might be dead. >> they are still trying to figure ou
of important stories to get you. i am generally. jon: i am jon scott. grumblings in washington as president obama begins the second day of fundraising. during a denver police academy yesterday before heading west. he attends private events today in california in hopes of helping democrats win back the house of representatives and hold onto the senate in next year's midterm elections. watchdogs are blasting the president for taking part after promising campaign-finance reform during his first term. ed henry is live from the white house. does this suggest that the president can work with congress right now? >> it has been getting earlier for both cards as they try to fight it out. he had two events last night, two events today, the president. law-enforcement officials, talking about gun control, saying that he wanted to work with republicans to find common sense and common ground on some of these gun-control measures. that sounds like a contradiction, although the white house spokesmen insist that raising money for democrats will also work for republicans and that is not appropriate. >> to do
at this national journal headline that says, "obama's gambit raises pressure on boehner, edges washington towards a budget deal." do you think that is what this is doing? do you think the president is seeing who will blink over it? >> as you heard the congresswoman say, a lot of folks and not even just progressives, folks were concerned about chain cpi and sort of the impact that that's going to have. the president is really going to have to make clear what's the full picture in order to have the support that he needs to raise those stakes for boehner. i agree with what the congresswoman is saying that there's every likelihood given to history that there will be some reason why some -- now that this idea has been proposed by the president, it's a terrible idea and we can't go back to the status quo arguments. >> we heard on "morning joe" this morning that this could potentially exploit the cracks within the republican coalition. is this doing just that, exploiting those cracks and the analogy that i use that the republican party is like lucy with the football and charlie brown, once they get some
paying the taxes are paying the price. next. lou: the obama administration under increasing fire for how this handling the sequester cuts according to the "washington post" thousands of cancer patients are being denied treatment for cancer clinics all across the country because of sequester cuts to medicare. the administration blaming republicans for sequester but the clinics aren't buying that. they say the obama administration has chosen to oppose the cuts and expensive chemotherapy drugs instead of on the surface side they could absorb the cuts or make do with fewer nurses and that coming from the cancer clinics themselves. more outrageous ways to taxpayer dollars,weekly standard senior vomiting this program rewarded more than $420,000 grant to indiana university to study the correct use of condoms. the research we are told has been completed. scientist have not released those long-awaited findings, but a government website confirms the study did not result in the creation of a single job. hundreds of fast food workers in new york walked off their jobs calling for higher wages and the
debate on gun reform, president obama is looking for support outside of washington d.c. yesterday at a police academy not far from the site of last year's theater shooting in colorado, the president focused on universal background checks saying his goal is not to take firearms away from their owners. >> the opponents of some of these common sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what's being proposed and nothing to do with the facts. but feeds into the suspicion about government. if there are any folks who are out there right now who are gun owners and you've been hearing that someone has taken away your guns, get the facts. we're not proposing gun registration system. we're proposing background checks for criminals. >> one of the most fascinating parts of the speech was when he talked about michelle saying if i lived in a rural area and i lived on a farm, i would want a gun in my house. he was talking about this is not about keeping guns away from people. michelle was talking to the president. the president by extension understan
get the check. who want to make sure it happens. president obama is pushing for everyone to own a home, even if they cannot afford it. no one in washington learned the lessons of the housing crisis. for more let's bring in lou dobbs. lou, this is one of our favorite topics the -- >> of favorite topic. he combines two of those old adages. the government is here to help and the check is in the mail. i think in the incense of the fha and this call by the obama administration for them to lower their credit standards, it is almost incomprehensible that this demonstration, no matter -- suppose no one is more critical of this a administration and i am, but even i am stunned by the stupidity of the statement. we are just coming out of the worst economic crisis since the depression. it is certainly without any qualification whatsoever the fault of the agency's that permitted this securitization of mortgages. and they're at it again five years out from the death of the crisis. the. gerri: the administration say we will let holder fee to the fire of these people go belly up. the government is so
for being with us tonight. we'll see you again tomorrow, go to gretawire.com, good night from washington. over to foxnews.com/shep. >> the o'reilly factor is on, tonight. >> president obama is the biggest spending president and has spent more money than any other president combined. >> more shocking examples of government waste, now we are spending taxpayer money on puppet research and snail sex. can washington get things under control? we will debate it. >> you were quoted as basically saying the deal is near, the deal is at hand and all of that coverage got senator rubio to say who, who, who no deal yet. >> deal or no deal? senator schumer says a bipartisan immigration bill is ready to go. but senator rubio says not so fast. where does the legislation stand? we'll have a report. >> i'm angry, i feel very disappointed and i feel like we don't even matter. >> the department of defense refuses to award the soldier who survived the fort hood massacre purple hearts. but why? >> who was the victim? major hasan or the 32 survivors and the 14 deceased? >> we will take a look at this disturbing
greatly. >> certainly president obama is trying to get the ball back in his court, so to speak, having the fire needed around the country and in washington, d.c. to move on some type of legislation for gun violence reform in this country. as we used president obama as an example, and americans see the first ever african-american president, does that give people a reason to think that we truly do live in a post racial america when we really don't? >> certainly, some people have tried to make that argument. i think when we looked at how our country, some part of our country reacted, we saw the rise of the tea party and frankly, the most vocal profane element of the tea party out there. it reminded people that we can't be post racial until we're post racism. we can't be post racial as long as people are showing up to rallies when they put the white back in the white house. and we as a country, i think all ultimately, most of us yearn to be that one nation, under god, with liberty and justice for all. tragedy is, my daughter is 7. she thinks per where she lives. our job as grown-ups is to
. according to the "washington post" the daughter of the former president will be president obama's pick to be ambassador to japan. kennedy was an early supporter of president obama along with her uncle the late senator ted kennedy during the 2008 presidential campaign. caroline follows a long list of high-profile ambassadors to japan including former vice president walter mondale, mike mansfield and also howard baker. it's a high-level position. good for her. we'll be right back. yeah? then how'd i get this...

getting from crowd in washington for last 12 years. charles: we're getting closer, a lot of people felt president obama more or less buying votes pushing that deal. what would make this a bad deal for the american people? >> well, a bad deal for american people is millions of people coming into this country, and continuing social welfare bilking as we have now. i know. a bad dial for americanss -- del would be we have how many people out of work? how many millions, and we're going to add to that job waiting list? a bunch of influke of workers coming here, and taking american jobs, one good thing that become out of this is securing our borders. i am curious why this is not something that a lot of folks are not talking about. i think that republicans should be pushing hard for that. charles: ironic that mccain was at the border and saw someone jumping over last week. to you, michelle, feels weird, we send people back to their home krein country to set up soe firms and their own business, should that be a tralart. >> we want to keep those people here in this bad economy we want people who
until 2009. >> i ran for president because i thought we needed big changes and i do think in washington it is a little like "american idol," except everybody is simon cowell. >> president obama decided he should hang with jay one more time when he was once again a presidential candidate, this time running for re-election. >> what is a cure for romnesia? >> well, obama care covers pre-existing conditions. if you have a case. the main cure, make sure you vote. >> joining me by phone, the man that spoke with jay leno about today's news, bill carter, national media reporter for "the new york times." bill, you spoke to jay and the story that you've written on it indicates this sounds like an orderly transition. >> that's what they're going for for sure. they have been through a lot of disorderly transitions in their history, and they were leaning the same direction until they got it sort of back on track in the past ten days. basically, jay agreeing to do it, the only way to make a transition work is for the outgoing host to decide yes, it is time for him to leave, same with johnny carson, c
far. according to the "wall street journal," the obama administration has decided to turn down the volume. white house correspondent dan lothian live from washington on that part of the story for us this morning. dan, this report reveals that the administration has a game plan for showing military force, but it also says the white house is now dialing back. why? >> reporter: well, you're right. i mean, the report talks about sort of this playbook, if you will, that has specific steps that was signed off on by the administration. essentially, the u.s. flexing its muscles to try to turn down the temperature, not only in north korea but also in the region there. but this report pointing out that the steps that the u.s. has taken may have been more provocative, may have pushed and provoked this new leader, kim jong-un, more than intended, so they're dialing things back just a bit. keep in mind that the u.s. presence has been increasing in the region in recent weeks starting back on march 8th when the u.s. flew b-52s as part of what was described as a routine mission. then about 2 1

hope that this is an example to the rest of the nation. certainly to our leaders in washington, who seem so deeply divided about an issue such as universal background checks, where the country is not divided itself. >> connecticut acts as president obama is out west today, trying to pressure congress to act. >> this is not easy. and i'll be blunt, a lot of members of congress, this is tough for them. because those who are opposed to any form of legislation, legislation affecting guns, they're very well organized and they're very well financed. but it can be done if enough voices are heard. >> joining me this hour, mark kelly, who with his wife, former congresswoman, gabrielle giffords, has become a leading voice for tighter gun laws across the nation. >>> countering the threats, the u.s. sends new missile defenses to guam as north korea deploy as medium-range missile to its coast. we're live with richard engel. >>> and horroring courageous women. and happy anniversary to us. join us as we celebrate our five years of "andrea mitchell reports." >> some of the responsibility for the gr

're most likely just a few weeks away from the obama administration's final decision on whether to give the keystone pipeline a thumbs up or thumbs down. on the eve of the keystone decision, safe to say nearly every environmentalist in washington believes the president will let this happen. but don't underestimate the impact that this story might have on the approval process. a 65-year-old pipeline ruptured in the town of mayflower, arkansas, 22 miles spewing thousands of barrels of oil through a housing development, across lawns and down residential streets. >> so that is a pipeline that is busted and has flooded the neighborhood. and is going all the way to the drain at the end of the street. the smell is unbelievable. i mean, look. incredible. and that is oil. >> oil on the streets of a residential community. exxon is still cleaning up the spill. the question is will pictures like these give environmentalists another opportunity to lobby the president and the new secretary of state john kerry on keystone. last night on chris hayes' new show "all in," one argued the damage in arkansas
to serve. >>> president obama has already chosen a woman. julia pearson. to head the secret service and now hes is reportedly ready to name another top law enforcements official, a woman, lisa monaco to head the fbi. the "washington post" is reporting that lisa monaco, the president's chief counterterrorism adviser is on the top of the president's short list to replace long-time director robert mueller. she's only one of many women who could make headlines. joining me now bloomberg view margaret carlson and washington bureau chief, elizabeth bloomler. hillary clinton coming back from a little time to clean the closets, whatever she's been doing. get some rest. and she's been off since she left the state department now we're going to see her twice this week and in coming weeks on paid speeches. first, vital voices so near to her heart. this is the event tuesday night and joe biden will also be there i'm told. >> he's making noises, possibly. >> about 2016. she's going to appear at tina brown's event on friday in new york. this is a high profile relaunch of the former secretary of state. >> w
in 2008 was hillary clinton would run and be the nominee, a little known senator barack obama upset that, and the rest is history. i suspect behind closed doors she's going to take some time off and do exactly what she's telling everybody, but nobody believes. >> joe biden was asked by "the washington post," has the race already begun, mr. vice president? the answer was, no. if you know anything about me, i've been making that same speech for 30 years. look into it. he has. he has great street cred. the women in the audience knew it, as much as they loved hillary, but that was clearly her home court advantage, but they know that joe biden has the sponsor of the violence against women act and has been a fighter for that. >> and it's been reauthorized. you know, we all know that joe is a mench, and the vice president is somebody, you know, who has a wide base of support, not only in the democratic party, but among a lot of people in the country, that believe that he is hard-working, straight-talking guy, but, you know, i thought the dynamic between former secretary clinton and vice preside
